Wings At The Speed Of Sound - Inner Sleeve Rear
Although widely regarded as Wings weakest solo album due to Paul NOT singing lead on FIVE tracks, this release was the 4th best-selling album in Britain in 1976, remained in the chart for 8 months, and narrowly missed out on the top slot on a couple of occasions during it's yo-yo like chart existence.
The sessions for "Speed Of Sound" took place at Abbey Road in January/February 1976, but on this occasion there are no unreleased tracks omitted from the final release.

This album was recorded hurriedly whilst in the midst of Wings' triumphant tour of the USA but it hardly shows.
Here though we hear Wings at their commercial peak, totally tight as a band and on a tour that was so good that Paul would and will never match it again.
To say this was a somewhat bland trough that they had fallen into would be unfair as Wings had spent much of 1975 on tour, and this album simply stands as a means to give them more tour material.

Wings At The Speed Of Sound sold like gang busters and became one of the biggest selling album of his solo career.
1976's "Wings at the Speed of Sound" displays a McCartney who is experimenting with new sounds as he always had; in this case, one of the new sounds is disco.
And "Speed of Sound" is far more honest in its disco influence than any of the songs rock acts put out post-Saturday Night Fever, in which they threw on generic disco bass just to score a quick hit.

 Paul McCartney/Wings
It sounds almost silly, but its mixture of bouncy pop and more elaborately arranged section is distinctively Paul, and comes across as a good example of his genius.
Vandebilt" is a thumping pop-rocker with a good acoustic guitar/bass sound during the repeating 'ho hey ho' parts, and a marvelous electric guitar solo during the break.
The former would have to be my pick as the top highlight of this set, as it is a superbly well-crafted song, with a wonderful climaxing chorus that is made lively by the horns playing along, and a great marching rhythm coming towards the end and fading out the tune.

Lots of people would say "Wings Wildlife" or "Wings At The Speed Of Sound", but I actually think they're both good pieces of music...
I'd vote for "Speed of Sound"....there are a couple of really good tracks on there, but most of it does nothing for me. I think that's the only one of Paul's albums I haven't yet bothered to buy on CD because I NEVER played the LP!
I love all three, Wild Life and Speed of Sound and London Town, I think that the bottom of my list, though very hard to choose is All The Best, because it is all old stuff and all stuff that is played on the radio all the time.
